    Not my cup of tea, but it's never a bad thing to see more custom mag bodies!

    Is the top of the body milled for a feedtube to fit in?

    Bit too blocky/square to my taste but keep at it, anything different and new is good.

    That's why it's good to have all the varieties.

    I think it looks cool... Especially like how it lines up with the rail. Grips look cool too

    so your saying it would be to hard to do

    I like it for the most part, but I also like more "3D milled stuff.

    but anything new is great. especially bodies.

    What would be hard to do, 3d? It's not hard at all, in many ways it is the easiest to program, although I've don't know what's involved in 4 and 5 axis programming, 3 axis is a breeze though.

    It has nothing to do with difficulty, just taste. I can appreciate all the work and artistry that goes into it, I just don't care for how extreme and common it has become in paintball, just my opinion.

    Not mine. Spotted it on Caustic Customs Facebook page.

    I love the look of it. I am thinking less black and more the orange and red. No yellow

    Here is more of it

    I would rate that in the top 5 best anno jobs that I've ever seen. That's really some
    beautiful work.

    Except that all the streaks aren't symmetrical.

    The streaks on the Xvalve, grip panels, and ASA should run toward the front of the marker like all the rest of the gun parts do (IMHO).

    My question(s)... does the Xvalve work like it should... and how much did the job cost total ?

    I'm guessing $300+

    What little I know about anno, I would say this type of work would be impossible to do with any symmetry.
    Really the lines are going in all directions, so I'm ok with the pattern, I love it.
    Finish work is so time consuming and even more so, to do well, I'd say this is worth every penny of $300.

    Well let me start off by saying that is my marker and Stephen from Caustic came thru once again. It was loosely based on a Tequila Sunrise theme but also had to match its smaller AM sized brother gun that I built a few months ago. Heres some pics of them together.

    And of course the X valve works as it should. As do all the ones I have sent him for anno. And as far as cost goes, well....

    Lets just say that he had my Nemesis Cocker there at the same time, and has also done several other guns for me, and it was worth every penny I paid for it to get done. Stephen knows that I will spare no expense when it come to the anno. Enough said. Heres a peak of the Nemesis build he did the anno for:
